This event recognizes South Carolinians for selfless service: a Leader of Distinction, Distinguished Alum of the Year, and the “Walking the Path of Leadership” award.

Core Class Programming Support

With more than 120+ hours of instruction, sponsors of our Core Program promote their organization through specific segments for the current class. Organizations can support the entire three-day session, meals, breaks, educational tours, or fellowship gathering. In-kind support is always welcome.

Class Projects

Every year each class undertakes a project for the benefit of our state. Since 2004, more than $450,000 has been raised for different causes including: SC Priority Schools, the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind, Senior Care Issues, and Drop-Out Prevention, just to name a few. Donating for the Class Project extends our reach to strengthen under-served communities.
